When I was younger, I always noticed that all the commercials on television were always of things we didn't have, whether it be some new toy or an insurance company. After we switched phone companies, we suddenly started getting commercials for our old company and stopped seeing the one we had switched to. It made me think that all companies kept track of what we had purchased so they could concentrate their advertising on those who did not have their product.

My sister told me that pressing on the red button on the remote control would blow up the television. I believed it quite some time, I didn't lay a finger on that button for many years!

When I was very little, I asked my dad why there were commercials on TV. He told me it was to give the actors a break in between scenes. Totally bought it for a few years.

I used to believe that back in the days, everything was black and white. I used to think this because of the old movies I watched growing up.

When I was little I saw Doctor Who on tv and the Doctor at the time wore clothing with lots of question marks all over it. At a local clothing store they sold 'Guess' brand clothing, their logo was a big question mark- so, naturally I thought that's where he must go to shop. I kept looking for him there, but sadly he never turned up.

I used to believe that when people in TV shows turned on the TV, they could see me. It made perfect sense to my 4 year old self. Since I could see them they had to have seen me.

I used to think that cinemas needed a massive Dvd to slot in underneath the big screen when I was little so I always used to check when we went to the movies!

I used to argue with my mom about bedtime because kids my age were on the TV, so obviously THEY were allowed to stay up late. It never dawned on me that the shows were not live, but rather, were recorded.

I used to believe that when the t.v would say please stand by because of technical difficulties that if I stood next to the television set then I would help fix it.

I used to believe that there was an elf inside the TV changing the channels. It blew my mind when I realized that the TV still worked after bedtime, because I thought the elves would be tired.

I used to believe that we were actually all smurfs and would get nervous in new places because Gargamel might show up and I wouldn't know what to do.

I used to believe that when the movies or TV shows were playing, they were actually acting them out live. I was amazed at the memory power they had to do marathons, and to do their shows over again many times during the year.
